Top bathroom trends for 2012

Mon, 23 Apr 2012 by Polycorp

The days of simple bathrooms are out.  They’ve become more of a retreat or sanctuary than just a bathroom.  As you’re on the hunt to purchase your new homes in Halifax, Nova Scotia residence, Polycorp suggests these five top bathroom trends for 2012.

Quartz Countertops

Quartz bathroom counter tops are in. They are relatively sturdy and this mineral surface is easy to clean and maintain, yet it’s pleasing to the eyes and very functional.

Double Vanity Sinks

Double vanity sinks are a recurring trend.  At Ravenscraig, each of our master bedroom ensuites in our new homes in Halifax, Nova Scotia feature double vanity sinks.  You’ll have more room, storage space and the convenience of not fighting over who gets the sink first to get ready for work or to go out for a night on the town.

Large airy showers, and with more glass

Even though there is nothing like having a long, hot soak in the tub, large showers with lots of glass are replacing bathtubs.  You can get a spa-like feel with a custom showerhead and body jets.


Storage is a big need in bathroom design.  Small drawers with dividers work best, and several experts say vertical storage is really catching on, because it works well while saving space.


The gray colour palette is it for 2012. This colour scheme doesn’t distract from the design and craftsmanship, is simple, elegant and distinguished.  Alternative colours include the blue or green color palette. Bright colours like orange or red are perfect for the kids’ bathrooms.
